It is understood that the main contractor, Saudi Binladin Group, is using Schwing Stetter equipment to provide the concrete for this tower, as it rises towards its eventual height of more than 1,000 meters. The contractor is employing two dedicated on-site Stetter HN 3.0 batching plants to produce the concrete necessary for this mega project in order to avoid potential delays in concrete supply. Meanwhile, (4 Nos.) Schwing SP 8800 D stationary pumps with 450kW in engine power each and a maximum feed pressure of up to 243 bar are available for high-rise pumping of the concrete. As the project's height tests the limits of current pumping technology, a further concrete pump will be installed at a height of 400 meters to continue the transport of concrete up to the higher floors. For placing the concrete, Saudi Binladin Group is using five Schwing concrete placing booms (SPB), with three SPB 35 and two SPB 30 booms, for placing the mix up to a height of over 950 meters. A high-performance, self-compacting concrete (SCC) C85 is being used for the first and second construction phases up to a height of approximately 400 meters, while for the third phase, continuing on to 675 meters, a similar high-performance concrete will be used but with a lower compressive strength. A comprehensive pumping trial was required on site prior to the start of the project to optimize the concrete mixture, because the existing models were not reliable for the project's scale.

Germany's Bauer Spezialtiefbau GmbH is carrying out foundation work on this tower. It is expected to handle the drilling of the bores to a depth of 50 metre-plus. 

Updated On : August 28, 2011 
US' Environmental Systems Design (ESD), the MEP consultant for this tower is playing an integral role in ensuring that the project is both energy-efficient and minimises potential problems such as stack effect. With a three-legged footprint similar to that of the Burj Khalifa, this tower is designed and orientated in such a way that its facades align from northeast and northwest, thereby avoiding the harsh morning and afternoon sunlight. ESD has worked with the architectural team on the high-performance aspects of the facade itself, from wall design to glass performance, looking to reduce the solar gains from the project. As part of its work to ensure optimum system performance, ESD also worked with architect Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and structural engineers Thornton Tomasetti on wind and airflow studies around the building to make sure they were not adversely influencing system operations. This tower will also be designed to collect and funnel condensate water from the building's air-conditioning systems, using them for irrigation and other purposes within the building. Efficient water fixtures would also be installed and used on the project, thereby minimising water use. 

Updated On : August 18, 2011 
Further details have been revealed about this project. It is understood that the tower would be at least 3,280-feet (1,000 metres) tall and about 50 storeys taller than the Burj Khalifa. The building will have three sky lobbies, with the most prominent situated at the 157th floor. The viewing platform disc that juts out from the side of the building was originally designed as a helipad and is 25 metres across. According to the architect, Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill, one of the limiting factors in skyscraper design was elevator design. At present, the elevators can reach a maximum height of 550-570 metres - due, primarily, to the weight on the cable and the load placed on motors that were currently available. As it stands, the elevators don't quite reach the highest occupied level of the tower, so a second tier of elevators has been designed in to the building. US-based Langan International has designed the tower foundation to overcome challenging sub-surface conditions consisting of very weak rock and highly permeable coral rock, which impacted pile capacities and settlement, among other critical design issues. Important geo-technical aspects of the project included a sophisticated sub-surface investigation using specialised field and laboratory testing, an advanced pile and barrette testing program, and a site-specific seismic hazard analysis. As part of the design team, Langan is providing multiple engineering services, namely geo-technical, site/civil, traffic and parking planning. With regard to site/civil engineering, Langan is managing multiple challenges, ranging from locating and orienting a tower in the centre of a planned city to storm-water designs that will mitigate flooding. Part of the overall storm-water management system designed by Langan will eventually collect, detain and discharge rainwater into a massive reflection pond at the base of the tower. Langan will also support the transformation of the conceptual master plan into construction-level documents, complete with roadway elevations, defined property boundaries, sub-surface utility layouts and storm-water detention requirements. Langan has also provided recommendations on the internal circulation patterns to the garages in this tower, the layout of spaces inside the garages, and the design and orientation of helixes.
